Links are off by one slide after exporting to PDF

Last updated: September 2016


When you save a PowerPoint presentation that contains links to other slides in the presentation as a PDF, all hyperlinks point to the wrong slide. In the PDF file, the links always point to one slide further than in the PowerPoint file. When clicking the links in the PowerPoint file, everything works as expected.

Status: Fixed

We released a fix that should solve this issue in the latest update for Office 2016, version16.0.7341.2032 or later. To get the latest updates, click File > Account > Update Options > Update Now.
